The Diversity Studies concentration is an interdisciplinary program of study allowing students to develop a broad understanding of the components of diversity in society, which include race and ethnicity, gender, social class, religion, culture and language. This concentration explores the historical, cultural and sociological differences amongst groups that bring us together and set us apart within the United States and globally. This concentration is relevant to any career that involves diverse populations of people, such as business, industry, education, social welfare, health and medicine.
This concentration fits well with several of the other approved concentrations (such as in Literature and LALS) and provides one more concentration option for the Interdisciplinary Studies major (including for our ABD students).
*Please note that this concentration is not available to Sociology majors. Sociology students interested in Diversity Studies should do the emphasis in the major.
